Why did you choose to go to Salamanca, Spain?

Because I was looking for a city small enough to feel at home, but big enough to not get bored. Salamanca was the answer.

You can walk everywhere without having the need of taking public transportation, everything is very close.

How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

It lasted 5 months and I was receiving €300 per month.

What is the student lifestyle like in Salamanca?

There were a lot of Erasmus students and lots of students in general. The city really lives around the University, there are different campuses, each one containing different faculties.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Salamanca to other students?


What is the food like?

The food is pretty much of Spanish style, there are a lot of places to eat in Plaza Mayor and its surroundings, but for me they are pretty much the same.

Also it's cheaper when compared to Belgium, I would say the prices are half of what they are back home.

Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Salamanca?

I booked my place on a website weeks before my trip, but I saw a lot of students finding accommodation once they were there and I think maybe that was a better idea. They had a larger choice range and the prices were cheaper if rented at the moment.


How much does it cost to live in Salamanca?

I paid €250 for my room, close to the center, and 10 minutes away from Plaza Mayor. Food and parties were cheap as well.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

Yes there are some organized courses to help you learn Spanish.

I was already speaking Spanish before arriving in Spain, but I would say the difficulty depends on your mother tongue. For Italian and French people it's easier, for others maybe not that much.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Salamanca from your city?

Plane to Madrid and then bus, and I think most of the students regardless of their cities, choose this method.

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Salamanca?

I would recommend 'La Chupitería' and all the bars around.
